  • About Us
    a discipline As the only field to address all aspects of the human experience cultural biological historical anthropology provides both a broad vision of what it is to be human as well as creative synergies unavailable to other disciplines within the human sciences and humanities We view the subdisciplines of cultural anthropology archaeology and biological anthropology as important foundations of our program because of their well defined fields of study Yet we also believe that recent trends in anthropological thought offer creative new directions that cut across and bridge the subdisciplines We see our long term vision as a department coalescing around the theme of local global dynamics that is the relationship between the small scale of the lives of our subjects of study as cultural and biological beings and the large scale patterns of society and history While addressed from different theoretical orientations and methodologies all anthropologists struggle with the problem of understanding the relationship of the local to the global We have identified four perspectives that address local global dynamics in ways that cut across the subdisciplines ecology and evolution power and practice globalization and landscape and space These intellectual bridges will create powerful new collaborations within the department and with other programs that will advance our research and teaching missions as well as create a more integrated departmental vision Department of Anthropology 1350 Pleasant St Boulder CO 80309 0233 Hale Science 350 Campus Box 233 UCB Phone 303 492 2547 Fax 303 492 1871 Email anthro colorado edu About Us Full Vision Statement Subdisciplines Hale Science Building Department Happenings Caught in the Cross Publics of the Muslimwoman Lila Abu Lughod Le Khac Quyet won the 2014 Sabin Prize for Excellence in Primate Conservation In 2002 Le discovered a new population of the Tonkin snub nosed monkey Faculty

  • Full Vision Statement
    history of human and non human primates Research on evolutionary history includes examining the fossil record to learn how changing selective conditions in past environments accounts for the long term patterns of biological evolution Since natural selection acts on individual organisms evolutionary explanations must move from considering how selective pressures act on individuals to the evolutionary consequences for populations and species Faculty whose research involves ecology and evolution include Professors Bernstein Covert Dufour Leigh Sauther and Sponheimer in biological Bamforth Cameron Gutiérrez Joyce Lekson Ortman and Sheets in archaeology and McCabe and Shankman in cultural Anthropological research on ecology and evolution also involves potential collaborations with the departments of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology Chemistry and Biochemistry Environmental Studies Geological Sciences Museum and Field Studies and Neurosciences and Behavioral Studies as well as the Institute of Behavioral Science and the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences River Travel Colombia Photo Paul N Patmore Power and Practice refers to research influenced by theories that address the recursivity of social life By recursivity we mean the dynamic interrelationship of human subjects and their social worlds Practice theories view society and culture as both the medium and the outcome of social practice Through their lives people are socially constituted as they internalize cultural rules and meanings in their dispositions These dispositions are externalized in practice which in turn reproduces and produces society and culture Practice theories therefore move from the microscale of the lived lives of people and their daily practices to the macroscale of society and history A focus on practice recognizes the multiple overlapping identities that distinguish people including those involving gender class ethnicity sexuality occupation kinship and community Identity is both an aspect of structure and practice and differentially positions actors in relation to bodies of knowledge and relations of power In understanding social production power in particular is a crucial concept Power is viewed not just in traditional ways as systems of domination but as the ways in which bodies of knowledge construct subjectivities Power as such is therefore implicated in all aspects of social life ranging from the level of discourse and social institutions to the dispositions and everyday practices of social actors Faculty whose research involves power and practice includes Professors Cameron Gutiérrez Joyce Lekson Ortman and Sheets in archaeology and Professors Cool Goldstein McGranahan Roland and Shannon in cultural Anthropological research on power and practice also involves potential collaborations with the departments or programs of Asian Languages and Civilizations Classics Humanities Economics Ethnic Studies Geography History International Affairs Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Studies Linguistics Museum and Field Studies Peace and Conflict Studies Political Science Religious Studies Sociology and Women and Gender Studies McDonald s promoting Thai food in Indonesian shopping mall Photo Carla Jones Globalization or rather the study of globalization processes is a specific theme within cultural anthropology and a bridging theme shared by all three subdisciplinary fields represented in our department Globalization includes theoretical

  • Archaeology
    geophysical applications in archeology Archaeology links with biological anthropology in a number of ways For instance archaeologists encountering burials frequently turn to biological anthropologists for analyses of stature health and other topics Many archaeologists and biological anthropologists share a deep interest in human ecology i e the ways people have adapted to their environments and affected those environments Archaeology also relates to cultural anthropology in significant ways since much archaeological theory is derived from cultural theory Given the vast diachronic interests of archaeology significant archaeological theory is also derived independently from ethnography Ethnoarchaeology spans the two subdisciplines as archaeologists study the material culture of functioning contemporary societies to learn how better to make inferences about past behavior Both archaeology and cultural anthropology study ethnic and political groups in contact with each other including topics of migration acculturation trade and tribute conquest information sharing elite emulation and the rise of multiethnic powers Every summer the CU Department of Anthropology conducts an archaeological field school for qualifying undergraduate and graduate students Archaeology Faculty Douglas Bamforth Pre contact archaeology of the North American Great Plains Catherine Cameron Archaeology of the North American Southwest Gerardo Gutiérrez Mesoamerican Archaeology and Ethnohistory Arthur Joyce Origins and development of complex societies of Mesoamerica Steve Lekson Curator of Anthropology Archaeology of the North American Southwest Scott Ortman Historical Anthropology of the North American Southwest Payson Sheets Archaeology of Mesoamerica and the Intermediate Area of lower Central America Department of Anthropology 1350 Pleasant St Boulder CO 80309 0233 Hale Science 350 Campus Box 233 UCB Phone 303 492 2547 Fax 303 492 1871 Email anthro colorado edu Archaeology Biological Anthropology Cultural Anthropology Department Happenings Caught in the Cross Publics of the Muslimwoman Lila Abu Lughod Le Khac Quyet won the 2014 Sabin Prize for Excellence in Primate Conservation In
